Sian Li ’18
Even though she didn't grow up in China, Sian grew up with two Chinese parents and a Chinese culture at home. The first language she learned was Mandarin as her mom was a stay home mom at the time. She went to Chinese school during the weekends from ages 6-12 to learned Chinese and math. During this time, she learned traditional Chinese dances as well! She has visited China for whole summers to see her extended family. She studied abroad in England, and also spent a summer working in China to experience more of the Asian culture and be closer to her extended family.
